Angels Wear White
DIRECTOR: VIVIAN QU
CAST: WEN QI, ZHOU MEIJUN, SHI KE, GENG LE
Di Wang and Ying Xin, an LGBT activist from China, will lead a discussion titled "Feminism, Art & #MeTooInChina" following the 7pm screening on Thursday, May 10.
A bold and, in Mainland China, unprecedented use of genre film to shine a light on a culture of bureaucratic corruption and conspiratorial silence which puts vulnerable young women at particular risk. Two schoolgirls are assaulted in a motel; Mia, a teenager on-duty at the desk who is the lone witness, says nothing to the authorities for fear of reprisal, but she begins to buckle upon meeting one of the victims, 12-year-old Wen, and finds herself sucked into an intrigue involving media, local government, and more. A harrowing and uncompromised sophomore feature from Vivian Qu, resonant with the global reckoning of the #MeToo moment.
